A North Philadelphia restaurateur, who gained local fame last year for spending $25,000 on her son’s prom that included camels, has been charged with allegedly defrauding the Social Security Administration.

Saudia Shuler was indicted for allegedly collecting nearly $37,000 in government benefits by claiming she was disabled yet continuing to work, according to the U.S. Attorney for Eastern Pennsylvania.

The defendant applied for benefits from the Social Security Administration, claiming she was disabled and unable to work. After Social Security approved benefits, the defendant continued working, including the operation of her own restaurant,” a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office said in an email Tuesday. “This work and income was never reported to Social Security, in violation of program rules.”

The fraud charges come in the aftermath of a momentous year for Shuler, 44, who twice made headlines for lavish spending.
